Day Twelve: Scariest Episode
I have to say that I don't usually find Supernatural particularly scary. There's a lot of great tension and there are moments when I hide my eyes behind my hands (the gore!) but I can't say it's ever made me need to sleep with the lights on (the way The Ring or The Amityville Horror did ;D). I figure there are restrictions (maybe?) on exactly how scary they can make it.
That said, I think Family Remains is the closest I got to actually being scared. I found it genuinely creepy. I love how it used a classic horror formula (creepy house, basement monster, dolls head in the closet!) with this episode. I'm often surprised that they don't do more of those.
Another episode that rather terrified me was On the Head of a Pin. Not in the jump out of your seat kind of terror, but terror for
Dean. When he walked into that room with Alistair I don't think I've ever felt so scared for him. An amazingly dark episode. (Live Free or Twihard also had me scared for Dean).
Scary moments - honourable mentions: The opening of Something Wicked (tree branches outside a window! *meep*), Provenance (creepy girl in a painting), Dead in the Water (face coming out of the water), The Benders (that house!! *yikes*), Levee Breaks (Alistair appearing..homg..), Caged Heat (the monsters in the cages disturbed me. In fact, that whole episode disturbed me!).
I'd love to see some more really creepy eps. Considering they are dealing with ghosts, monsters and demons you'd think we'd have more scares (or maybe that's just me?)
